ABSTRACT:
Sunflower Wax is a component of the hull of sunflower (Helianthus annus) oil seeds. The wax is essentially composed of extensively saturated esters of long chain fatty acids (C20-C22) and fatty alcohols (C22-C29). Due to its low economical value, it is often considered as industrial waste. Thus, the focus of the work was to purify the wax and explore its use in cosmetic product, lipstick. The replacement of beeswax with sunflower wax did not alter the properties of the lipstick, thereby providing an economical alternative to beeswax.
